After being on a long business trip in Japan, I returned to find a beautiful 2006 Exige parked in my garage. My wife and I had been shopping for a sports car for some time now and had finally zeroed in on what we really wanted. While I was away, she found the perfect car, purchased it, and drove it back from NY. I have always wanted a Lotus (I'm a huge 7 fan) and could not be happier with this car. The driving experience is basically perfect. We've had it down to southern Ohio a few times now to get a feel for the car and the level of communication it provides is unreal compared to most modern cars. It makes my MINI feel like a rubber band.
